Production + Research

For Superwood, Fraunhofer Institute for wood research WKI develops an adhesive composition that is based on casein gained from food waste. This makes it possible to dispense with formaldehyde as an adhesive and produce a natural wood-based material. The material undergoes various quality tests and exceeds the maximum stability standards for MDF according to DIN.

Sofia Souidi, as the initiator of the project, is involved in the development from the very beginning. As an industrial designer she is familiar with various manufacturing processes and has a broad technical understanding. Due to her design background, she looks at a standardized process from an application perspective, brings in new impulses and explores the limits of what is feasible.
